WILTON – A Chesterville man faces multiple charges after being accused of stabbing his girlfriend with a knife on Friday night, police said.

The man, Carlton Elliott, 23, of 105 Horse Shoe Pond Road, was arrested after police responded to a domestic disturbance call about 7 p.m. at a Wilton residence, where Elliott and his girlfriend were visiting friends, according to Wilton police Chief Heidi Wilcox.
Police initially charged Elliott with domestic assault and violation of conditional release, taking him to Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington, Wilcox said.
During a follow up interview Sunday with police, the girlfriend said that she had been stabbed by Elliott on Friday, Wilcox said. Police then added charges against Elliott of aggravated assault and obstructing report of a crime, which stems from the girlfriend saying he had taken her cellphone when she attempted to call police, Wilcox said.
Wilcox said Monday that the girlfriend was stabbed multiple times in the legs, describing her injuries as non-life threatening. The woman, who police have not identified, was expected to get medical treatment for her injuries on Monday, Wilcox said.
Police found the knife they suspect Elliott used to stab his girlfriend when they searched him Friday night, Wilcox said. He had the knife on him and police seized it while processing him for arrest, she said.
Elliott was being held Monday morning at the detention center, jail records show. Wilcox said Elliott and his girlfriend were living in a Jay residence together before the incident on Friday.
